    In a job market like the one we're currently in, simply "finding another job" is not the option it may have been at one time.  And even if it were, the SCOTUS ruling has just opened the door for other employers to take a similar road.

    As to your last point, this is one of the chief reason WHY we don't have single payer, and one of the chief reasons why so many large corporations have such a problem with the ACA.  By chaining the ability to get insurance to working at a particular job, employers gain control over their workers.  Especially if said workers develop health conditions that would keep them from being eligible for coverage under another policy at another employer.  It promotes the culture of serfdom they seek.

    In this specific case, that's amplified by the fact that the only group of employees affected are women.  A class of people they probably feel shouldn't be in the workforce in the first place.

    As I said in a comment yesterday , this has fuck-all to do with any kind of religious belief (sincerely held or otherwise).  It has everything to do with control and subjugation.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
